Update - August 2018

Dear Supporters,

We are thrilled with the progress with which your donations have enabled so many families to benefit from our 7,000 Safe Stoves for Refugee Mothers. 

In addition to the families who are now using safe stoves over traditional open fire stoves, women within the camps are have found a renewed sense of empowerment through their own manufacturing of these stoves. Each team of women have trained and worked to create a tool that can be produced from local materials and sold at an affordable price. This is incredibly powerful for both the community and each woman's individuality. 

This program continues to provide opportunity for safer ways of cooking, living and surviving in a most difficult situation. We are so grateful and humbled by the fortitude of the women who have worked so very hard to rebuild their lives for themselves and their families. 

We are also grateful for you and your continued support. Your support really does impact lives for the better!

To better measure our progress in numbers, designated DWN volunteers have traveled to Chad for this season to gather data and report directly from our Touloum Camp. We are anxiously awaiting their final reports on not only the 7,000 Safe Stoves program, but others as well. 

It's important to Darfur Women Network to visit the camps, speak with refugees and volunteers to provide the most reliable information about all of our programs. It's this one on one attention that helps us best assist those who are working daily to survive within the refugee camps. We will always be dedicated to our mission and look forward to continuing to do everything we can to support the safety and empowerment of women.

Thank you!

Wells & Water

Darfur Women Network has been working overseas onsite in Chad to provide resources enabling our clean water project to continue. We have received much needed donations from our supporters allowing us to acquire equipment for well cleanup and security and project quote and assessment from trained professionals.

Despite the intense heat, we are still committed to providing safe haven, shelter and clean water to refugees as well as ensuring their personal safety while working within the wells.

A list of items still needed for donation are available online or can be sent on request.

Thank you to all of our supporters for your efforts. Without you, we could not accomplish these goals!

6000 Safe Stoves for Darfur Refugee Mothers Update

Hello Supporters!

We've seen an increase in the production of safe stoves despite the difficult seasonal challenges in Chad. Along with increased production, more famlies have acquired safe stoves for their homes. Our production groups have worked well together providing women with economic empowerment. Each group is made up of 50 women who have created 800 new units sold to DWN. We have in turn purchased and distributed those stoves to an additional 200 widows and 600 of the poorest families in the Touloum Camp.

We began with the goal of supplying 7000 stoves. We've now dropped that number since we've been able to provide over 1000 stoves since the inception of this project! With another 800 stoves produced and delivered, we're making great progress in our mission.

We couldn't do it without you, our supporters, and your generosity. We couldn't do it without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers and the brave women working to create these stoves in Touloum. 

DWN is committed to continue the Safe Stove project til we get that number down to 0 for Touloum and can move to another camp.

Thank you for all of your support and we look forward to seeing what 2018 can deliver!
